Mascoma finalizes switch from Greece to Rome (NY) for pioneering cellulosic ethanol plant | Biofuels Digest

Helge: I think Cellulosic Ethanol can become a big thing. But we're not yet there. It takes a lot of time to get to the full scale. We've lots of talent around this question. But we need to get down to the practical. The down to earth work is evolving. We've a team. There are several teams around the globe. We might need to work together: share, learn and cooperate. Open source innovation is needed to get cellulosic ethanol off the ground.

Mascoma finalizes switch from Greece to Rome (NY) for pioneering cellulosic ethanol plant | Biofuels Digest: "Mascoma finalizes switch from Greece to Rome (NY) for pioneering cellulosic ethanol plant In New York, Mascoma has decided to move the location of its proposed cellulosic ethanol plant from Greece to Rome (NY), citing the need to be closer to biomass sources and the suitability of the former Griffiss Air Force Base as a facility.

The switch had been mooted for some time and in September Mascoma appeared before the Oneida County Board in support of its plans to open in Rome. The proposed demonstration plant would produce 500,000 gallons per year of cellulosic ethanol, and will commence production by March. The plant has received $14.8 million in assistance from New York state."
